Blogger’s Note: We have posted the biographical portion of Scott’s official City of Roseville officeholder site. We are going to pick it apart as we have determined via our investigation of Scott Alvord that most of this background is fraudulent.
Scott earned an MBA-MCA degree from Sacramento State University. He also has a Bachelors of Science in Computer Science from Pacific Union College in Angwin, CA.
Scott has been married since 1986 to his college sweetheart, Karen. They are the parents of 7 children (some by birth and some through adoption of relatives), and currently have 9 grandchildren. They raised their family in Roseville, started companies here, and plan to retire here.
Scott is the CEO of Advanced Development Concepts, LLC. ADC is a 30+ year business consulting company that helps businesses break through barriers that are holding them back, whether it be techniques to increase revenue, gain business exposure, reach target customers, or help solve problems. His company has two small subsidiaries: Advanced Programming Concepts (a software/tech company) and Advanced Publishing Concepts (an author-services company). Scott was also the original owner of an award-winning restaurant that he operated for over a decade in downtown Roseville (A Dash of Panache). He sold the restaurant in February 2016.
We’ve been alerted about Dash of Panache and some suspicious circumstances surrounding it. as of right now, we are holding off writing about the incendiary revelations pending verification and corroboration. We’ve also written extensively about ADC LLC with regard to its’ relative and apparent lack of success and how it was used to conceal the fact that Mr. Alvord has effectively had to self-publish his books that have sold few, if any copies. If you read the previous paragraph, you’d get a misleading impression of Mr. Alvord’s background. In addition, you can read here about another book project that he solicited funds for that is over 5 years old and as of yet un-completed. I wonder if it will sell 100 copies too.
Scott is very involved in the regional business community, economic development, the neighborhoods, and tackling solutions for the unhoused in our county.
This includes the Placer Rescue Mission that never owned any real property and basically existed only on paper (and our source for this info has inside knowledge of it). Yet, Alvord reminds everyone he helped found this entity. Deceptive at best. This also includes habitually claiming credit for other people’s work – such as blowing the City of Roseville rollout of the Amazon Hub and claiming credit for road construction planned years ago.
In the business community, he previously served for nine years as president of the Downtown Roseville Merchants, operates the Advanced Business Roundtable, teaches as a business professor at William Jessup University, and is a member of the Roseville Area Chamber of Commerce. He is a business speaker, trainer, coach, and author.
Mr Alvord is not a “professor”. This claim is false, he is an adjunct staff (the technical job title he holds) that teaches 1-2 classes a year. In addition, recall that Alvord’s Business Class once did a business plan for the Roseville Chamber that was so poorly written that it was discarded and the Chamber did not endorse him for election in either 2014 or 2016 when he ran.
Scott has been voted “Favorite Local Businessperson” and “Favorite Civic Leader” in the Style Magazine’s Readers Choice Awards. He was a 2015 and 2016 finalist in the Gallina’s Business Person of the Year award.
Your intrepid blogger recalls when Mr. Alvord was soliciting votes for said awards. All part of crafting an image. I wonder what City Staff would say if they were allowed to speak honestly.
In the neighborhoods, he has served on the executive board of the Roseville Coalition of Neighborhood Associations (RCONA), as president of the Westpark Neighborhood Association, and as president of the Pleasant Grove Neighborhood Association. He has helped start new neighborhood associations and provided information, education, and support to help them thrive. You will often find he and his wife at neighborhood functions across the city.
It is widely believed that RCONA has been a front for liberal democrat candidates in Roseville. Your intrepid blogger has had firsthand knowledge that RCONA has been exclusionary in allowing people to participate. Not a good scene at all.
He previously served as the only business representative on the Placer County Homeless Advisory Committee and has since helped form the Placer Rescue Mission, a 501(c)3 charity organization. The PRM is following proven national models to develop a large “housing first” project that could essentially eliminate resident homelessness in Placer County and save the county $8 million per year once it’s completed. While he has deep compassion for the growing problem of homelessness, he is excited over the economic cost savings to our region by properly solving the problem and helping restore many of these lives back into a thriving community.
By virtue of my research in to Mr. Alvord, it is hard to believe he has true compassion for anyone. That said, see the above comments about the Placer Rescue Mission which is little more than a shell.
He served as a Senior Examiner at the California Awards for Performance Excellence (CAPE), which is the California version of the national Malcolm Baldridge Quality Awards program. He led teams that evaluated the state’s top performing corporations, hospitals, schools, civic governments, and even military programs for prestigious awards. He believes that this unique experience provided him with a fresh perspective of looking at complex organizations and has since helped shape his business perspectives.
According to confidential sources, Mr. Alvord had his business class write a business plan for the Placer Rescue Mission one year, look at the nearly defunct Mission now. Our research indicates he has sold no more than 100 books, it is likely it would be near zero if he was not requiring his students to buy it as a part of his adjunct faculty class at WJU (again this claim is backed up by a confidential informant known to us who requested anonymity). Look at the expose on Advanced Development Concepts that we have written. We followed up on Advanced Development Concepts with a second post here. None of this matches up with any of the claims he makes about himself and we have presented evidence to back up our evisceration of Mr. Alvord’s claims about himself.
It is an age-old question with candidates and officeholders: what is real and what is hyperbole in their biography? Some exaggeration is expected. However, what is not expected is blatant misrepresentation and fraud in said representations. My first clue that Scott Alvord was a fraud is that his alleged faith and the political values he espouses are nowhere near compatible. He claims to be a moderate, yet has enumerated values line up with the far left such as Kamala Harris, AOC and that ilk.
The number of off the record conversations I have had with people related to Scott’s personal conduct have been staggering. Some of the stuff I have been told about him is far too specific to relate on this blog as the intimidated and scared sources are not ready to go public. Suffice to say, Mr. Alvord has threatened me multiple times just in the forum of this blog, so I can imagine what he has done to City Staff and others around the community.
You can’t trust Scott Alvord. He is not safe. He is not who he says he is, not even close. It is time to retire him from the body politic in Roseville once and for all.
P.S. If you have been adversely affected by Scott Alvord, please reach out to me at [email protected] You can remain anonymous, but I hope you will consider going on the record.
